SAN BENITO, Texas (ValleyCentral) — A woman was arrested after allegedly assaulting a 13-year-old who was trying to call police, officials stated.

Alexa Marie Cortez is charged with injury to a child and interfering with an emergency call, according to Cameron County records.

At 3 a.m. Thursday, officers arrived to a domestic disturbance at the 100 block of Edwards Street, near South Sam Houston Boulevard, where they saw a woman attempting to punch another woman.
